i have posted about getting a fuel system and the more that i look at them the simpler they look so i am going to build my own set up will post on here about how i do it but i just a little insight on how to do it... haha i just need to know the configuration of doing the fuel bowl delete without buying the kit

Two stock pumps are way more expensive than an aftermarket pump or pumps. You must have a regulator. It would go right after where your return lines come together. the idea is to regulate the amount of fuel pressure in the heads, so your regulator goes in and acts as a check valve and hold back the desired psi of fuel in the fuel rails in the heads. Other than that it looks alright. What size injectors are you planning on running?

I appreciate that some people do not have the money to purchase full on prefabbed RR or whole fuel systems or wish to. If you are willing or can do a bit of assembly work yourself with a bit of research or asking on here I am sure a detailed parts list and a "how to" could be posted that would allow people to do a full RR with bowl delete keeping it as a stock sized fuel system. Since you are not looking for more fuel flow ( you will actually get some) than the stock lines and pumps can supply there is far less to purchase $$ wise as the fittings and hose is all smaller and less of it is needed along with a pump etc...

Here just off the top of my head and rounding some numbers:

$130 Fuelab Reg
$10 Parker 801 -4an hose 5'
$10 T or a bit more for a Y (1x-6an > 2x-4an)
$7 4x 1/8npt>-4an: (2xstraight 1x 45° 1x90°)
$20 -4 an PL Hose end fittings 3x 90° 1x 45° 4 straight
$5 2x -4an>-6an orb
$2 Compression> -an: 3/8">-6an orb
$25 Spin on filter base (uses the Donaldson 2mic absolute one pass filter.)
$15 in a few fittings to hook the filter base up.

Rounds to $225 add another filter base for a fuel water sep pre pump can be done for $30-40 So for under $300 you can basically do a full system for stock to stage I /stage II injectors. It will get full RR better flow and full real 2mic filtration and actual effective water sep

So figure in shipping $25 more gets you a full RR and removes the restrictive oem fuel port fittings at the heads. For an additional $45 you now have best full filteration with water sep or what around $60 over a FRX shipped.


Further at the very least for stopping air replace the QEM QD fittings at the pump inlet and tank sending unit outlet with some hose and worm clamps. It will stop the air infiltration. Better yet do the whole thing in which case its just worth purchasing the PU kit for that.

Anyways another option and something to consider
